Failures on the 747

Recommended Posts

Hello! I am interested to know whether there will be some changes in some of the systems on the 747 FSX release. The first thing I had in mind were the failures. Sure, most of them ARE simulated....however, all you can do is manually arm them and then, of course - you know they'll fail. No element of suprise there :) I was wondering whether there will be an option of a completely randomly and independently generated failure? Something like having the anti-ice failure on one of the engines, for example. Or something as severe as the hydraulic failure! Have the #4 system leak, and land on the main body gear only! :) Would stuff like that be possible? Of course, to make it realistic, it wouldn't be right to have a failure on every flight, but also wouldn't be much fun having a failure only every 4000 hours of operation.....Cheers!Ivan

Random failures are already modelled. See pages 0-17 and 0-18 in the manual.- Bill

Now that I've read through that part of the manual again, I do have a completely different understanding of the failures simulated. I withdraw my initial comment. Thanks for the help!
